Several homes in Tucson area suffer unexplained roof damage
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Several homes on the northwest side suffered unexplained roof damage on Friday, June 3.
According to homeowner Marco Tellez, it happened in a neighborhood near Old Father and Magee around 3 p.m.
“I was sitting on my couch about (and) heard this huge bang and my house shook,” he said. “It sounded like something had hit my house. I ran outside, along with some neighbors who heard it too and saw roof tiles all over my yard. I looked up at my roof and I see a huge circular hole in it, it must have come from the sky.”
Tellez said at least seven of his neighborhood’s home were also damaged, all in a straight line. He said the damage ranged from minor to major.
“Neighbors in the next subdivision came over and said they were also hit and have lots of damage,” he said. “They believe that whatever hit their house came from west to east based on where it hit.”
He said in his neighborhood, whatever damaged the homes came from the east to the west.
Other neighbors told Tellez they didn’t see any evidence, like plane parts, that could explain the damage.
KOLD went to the scene and saw at least four homes with obvious roof damage.
Twitter user @Soze47 posted video of the damage, which can be viewed below.
Things didn’t get any clearer when KOLD talked to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.
The PCSD said a deputy was sent to the scene to investigate.
“There is no clear evidence as to what caused the damage and no suspicious activity,” the PCSD said.
The deputy said a weather phenomenon may be a possible explanation.
KOLD is investigating and will update this story with whatever we find out.
